So what do you all think about this? With Apple's vision, I could see them already planning this product for phase 2 of AppleTV, or they could add it to the plan after the new ATV has been out awhile and they have collected user feedback. What do you think the chances are of Apple delivering a companion device for ATV that would connect to the network so that we would have a dedicated always-on iTunes library? It would be a central hub of media that could stream directly to the ATV in the living room, and eliminate the need for us to leave a Mac on during streaming. I could see this being done a few different ways... 1. A new version of Time Capsule that stores and streams media to ATV. 2. A new add-on device that connects to TimeCapsule or AEBS to store and stream media. 3. A software/firmware update + installer that can format an external HD and install iTunes (or a streamable version of the iTunes library) that can then stream to ATV. The thing is that I worry about beginning to rely on streaming from my Mac frequently and the toll it will take on my hard drive. It would have to shorten it's lifespan to some degree. Thoughts?
